Track Name: Balcony
What's it like being pretty?
Track Name: Tassels
The first time I ever went to her place she sat on her bed and stared at my face. She said, "The tassels on your loafers look like anchovies." And that you need to stop wearing button down shirts. The second time I ever went in her room we drank PBR and Everclear. And then we kissed and went into her hallway where she said, "We should've made out in the library." When she acted snobby it used to make me smile. But I would die a little, each time, on the inside. If you miss me darling just know that I still try to find the perfect leather when I browse through loafers. She told me not to come over anymore, 'cause the last time I did I threw up on her floor. I'm not sure why she's always so mean to me; I'm a pretty nice guy to have as a friend. But we are not right for one another so I guess we should never make out ever again.
Track Name: Next to You
Please tell me what you want to do on your birthday. I want to be your only one. I want to be right next to you.
Track Name: Overly Aggressive Bingo Players
Last night, last night we went out. Went out to see, to see what we could, what we could get, get for the money, that we had made, made from the bingo we played. Last night, last night we passed out, we passed out, passed out from all, from all the drinking, from the drinking we did, did with the money, that we had made, made from the bingo we played.
Track Name: Fiddler on the Floor Puking
I thought about her for the better part of a year. She thought about me for probably ten seconds. I cut my hair for her, I cut my hair for her. And I bought pomade for her, I bought pomade for her. I looked like Mad Men for her, I looked like Mad Men for her. I didn't sleep at all for her, I didn't sleep at all for her. Her roommate said she'd gone back out to meet a guy she met at the party we were at. I saw them there. I thought that they were friends. I guess I should have known when I saw them making out. Oh well. I tried to be funny for her, I tried to be funny for her. I drank too much for her, I drank too much for her. I wrote a love song for her, I wrote a love song for her. And I brought flowers to her, I brought flowers to her.
Track Name: Bridegroom
tonight i'll leave for good. we'll part ways once more like we should. but i wish you'd write me just once. i'd reply with a postcard, it's not much. but i mean what i say. i wish you could stay. but it's for the better anyway. did you change? was it me? or was it you? did it fade? wear away? what did we do? to make this all seem, like a distant dream. and break something so sweet. because i have been thinking all this time on all the miles we used to drive. and we'd fight like we were married. we'd fight like we were married. and i have been hoping all this time that you would finally stop by and say "hi how have you been doing?" and i hoped you'd come around. i hoped you'd come around. we'd spent the night in your car with the view of the park there you are in my backseat. oh how nice it would be to see such a thing--you and me together again.
Track Name: Up Late
i stayed for four weeks longer. 'cause i thought you'd change your mind. but you told me to go there faster. 'cause you didn't change your heart. i walked straight through the winter to your place to see your eyes. i threw debris and ice at your window to wake you up so you would come outside. we stayed up late and talked for hours. on your balcony it was cold as ever. and you told me that you're going to norway. while i study teeth at school in philly. she slept close to me. and in her eyes i found time. she slept close to me. at the party we went to on thursday. i drank too much and barely made it back. i looked for you in a maze of frozen sidewalks. the new year came but you had gone away.
Track Name: Sweet Jenni
two days before you left i asked you to stay. you said "don't flatter yourself." i asked again anyway. and the other night i saw you, you were standing there. i silently walked by because i was scared. i didn't know what to say. if it means anything, i just want to let you know that. i'm sorry sweet jenni. i wasn't what you wanted. i'm sorry sweet jenni. you were everything i wanted. we lost time. we lost time. i should've kissed you goodbye. i should've kissed you goodbye. if it means anything, i just want to let you know that. i'm sorry sweet jenni. i wasn't what you wanted. i'm sorry sweet jenni. you were everything i wanted. you never meant anything, you never understood. another sad excuse, i'll never be any good.
Track Name: I Miss You
i'm walking home. i'm all alone. i have the spins with a mile to go. and i miss you. yeah, i miss you. i miss you. can we get high? and spend the night beneath the sky on your rooftop. 'cause i miss you. yeah, i miss you. (alone, alone)
Track Name: By Tomorrow You'll Be Gone
your taste is on my lips. and your scent is on this shirt. from the kiss that we shared in the park. as we drive i count the yellow lines. all these cars are just flying by. and all these buildings, they reach up to the sky. and every street reminds me of you. so let's slow down and just talk. oh let's just slow down and just talk.
